    Photo: Protesters converge at the Israeli Embassy in Stockholm.

Across Europe major protests have been taking place, not only in major world centers such as Paris or London, but also in other European cities such as Stockholm which saw thousands take to the streets in solidarity with Gaza. This photo essay presents images from a major protest in downtown Stockholm which attracted thousands who called for an end to the Israeli bombardment on Gaza.

A goal for the demonstrations in Stockholm, was protesting at the Israeli embassy, which has been forced to move several times in the last three years due to the complaints from neighbors on noise created by frequent demonstrations, now the Israeli Embassy is accommodated in temporary room at the National Museum of History in Sweden.

Photo: Thousands protest on a very cold Saturday morning to oppose the horrible crimes committed by Israel in Gaza.

Photo: Demonstrations in Sweden included many different activist groups and also Muslim and Jewish organizations.
